Liam Gallagher and All Saints singer Nicole Appleton were granted a ‘quicky’ divorce this week.
The celebrity couple who were married for 5 years and together for 13 years were granted a divorce in just 68 seconds at a family court in London.
Appleton N M v Gallagher L J P was the second in a list of twelve undefended cases heard by Judge Anne Aitken on Tuesday April 8th.
The petition was brought by the 39-year-old All Saints singer and was undefended by Gallagher, who admitted adultery.
In court papers Nicole Marie said Liam ‘admitted adultery to me prior to it becoming publicised in national newspapers’.
She also said that the woman whom he committed adultery with ‘now has a child’ by him, and that she found it ‘intolerable’ to live with him.
The singer explained that she had not lived with him since he admitted the adultery in July 2013.
in a statement acknowledging receipt of the divorce petition Liam, in his full name of Liam John Paul Gallagher, admitted committing adultery and repled ‘yes’ to the question of whether he admitted adultery.
He stated that he did not intend to defend Appleton’s petition and also agreed to pay her ‘reasonable costs’.
Judge Aitken granted Appleton a decree nisi on the ground that the marriage had irretrievably broken down because of Liam’s admitted adultery.
The couple have a 12-year-old son Gene. Liam also has a 14-year-old son, Lennon, with ex-wife Patsy Kensit, and a 15-year-old daughter, Molly, with singer Lisa Moorish.
It is reported that Gallagher also fathered a child with a US journalist Liza Ghorbani.
Ghorbani filed a £2million lawsuit for child support after she claimed to have given birth to his daughter, Gemma, in January, following an affair which is said to have begun when she interviewed him for the New York Times in 2010.
